I'm obviously getting into the comments very late, but I felt the need to reply.

If you plan on replacing your reading with BBC News, you obviously have never read both of them. They are nothing alike. Whereas the BBC mainly reports strictly news (with an arguable anti-US spin that has grown tiresome to me), the NYTimes produces fantastic journalism. They have the best columnists and investigative reporters anywhere. Their travel and food sections are second to none. I also enjoy the tone of their writing -- it carries a more traditional, formal language than many newspapers these days.

I will watch with great interest how this plays out. I love my and would have to think hard about whether to pay for it.

It seems you're talking from another planet. Here in Italy the non-Berlusconi controlled news are Murdoch's SKY (pay channel), RAI 3 (soon to be "moderated" by Berlusconi cronies) and LA7 (controlled by Telecom Italia).
For me, I did what my grandfather did -- in the 1940s he listened to the BBC to know what was really going on.
In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

all the whole shebang is NOT under [state] police control, but by [local, city-paid-for traffic] police control so there's no corruption. it's the city council that met a private company that were peddling those cameras and ok'd their proposal. the system were set up, rigged and operated by private companies, who got a share of the revenues.
